Protecting patients and the community from COVID-19

Mater is working closely with the Queensland Government to respond to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Our priority is always the health and wellbeing of our patients, our staff and the community.

To ensure this, Mater adheres to all State Government directives and restrictions affecting hospitals and health services.

You can view the State Government’s current COVID-19 hospital restrictions and access information about vaccination against COVID-19 here.

Visitor restrictions from Friday 17 December 2021

No vaccine, no visit

Mater is complying with the State Government directive requiring visitors to public and private hospitals to be fully vaccinated. All visitors to Mater hospitals will need to demonstrate their COVID-19 vaccination status before being permitted to enter our healthcare sites.

This can be done through the State Government’s Check In Qld app when you enter one of our hospitals. Some exemptions apply to this directive for visitors entering hospitals in cases of childbirth, end-of-life care and emergency medical care.
